Reset Password

There are plenty of methods, but if they fail, this should always do the trick:
  1. Hold Command-R on startup.
  2. Open Terminal from the Utilities menu.
  3. Run resetpassword, which opens the Reset Password application.
  4. Select the volume and account, reset the password and set a new hint.
* This does not reset the keychain password, only the login password!
